Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Colonic carcinoids are rare tumors of the G.I. tract. Only 4% of all colonic carcinoids are synchronous. The patients (50-60%) with colonic carcinoids have already regional metastases at the time of diagnosis. The treatment of choice is surgical as these tumors are resistant to chemotherapy or radiotherapy. A case of a 75-year-old lady with a synchronous colonic carcinoid is reported.
